Sunday, May 19th, 2024

Shenali D Waduge In 2011 AMNESTY accepted $50,000 from a Canadian based LTTE front, so naturally it is not a surprise when AMNESTY International’s Alan Keenan quoted 40,000 to 147,000 dead. Can Amnesty produce names of even 10,000 dead, we think not. Interesting that the photo of the commemoration with Agnes Callamard bowing & offering […]

TAMIL TEENS promoting LTTE holding foreign passports

Monday, May 6th, 2024

Shenali D Waduge Is it not curious that the so-called youth promoting the Eelam ideology are all living overseas, holding foreign passports, studying in foreign schools or universities and probably cannot speak a word of Tamil or Tamil with heavy foreign accents.
